Ah-choo!

I may be feeling terrible because of allergies, but I'm pretty pleased that I can make myself comfortable on the couch under a handmade blanket and my little handmade quilt, with handmade wool socks on -- a happy cat curled up on my legs and a new Knitty online. Could be worse.

(I'll tell ya what I want to knit from Knitty later, once I've had a good look. Whah-choo -- oh, pardon me -- gonna make?)

Hope you feel better! Sounds like you have one hell of a great coping mechanism though, what with being surrounded by lovely handmade and cute Mooky to keep you company :)

Oh and Lori Z., are allergies a Southern California thing? hmm.. maybe there IS a solution for me other than Claritin - moving upstate! haha.

Very nice Fall issue of Knitty! I think Tussie-mussie, Muir and Foliage look like good places to start.

Hope a little Mooky and a warm blanket will have you right as rain soon.

Mr. Greenjeans is making me awful happy.

Feel better!! (Although if you have to be sick, you sound pretty well set up!) I really like Roam, Tussie Mussie, Foliage and Henry - oh Henry! Good man-scarves are hard to come by, I love the looks of that one.

Stacey said...

Feel better!!! How could you not with all that homemade goodness surrounding you!

The new Knitty looks great - I need to look closer also!

Corvus said...

Ooo, new knitty! Thanks for the heads-up.

I like Tussie Mussie and Henry, but I'd make Henry into a baby blanket for my favorite baby...Henry!! :)

Oh the ideas...

I have already ordered the yarn for Cheri Amour, and the Diamond Waffle socks are PERFECT for some yarn my bro-in-law wants making up for Christmas. Then, when I am feeling brave I really need Tussie Mussie, and when I decide that really there aren't enough blankets in the world (1 just off the needles, one on, and 2 quilts in production) I shall make totally autumn. So many lovelies, so little time.

I'm liking the sock patterns, Muir, and Henry. I'm surprised Boxed made it into this issue though--that couldn't be a flattering sweater on anyone!

Yuckie! I hate allergies. I hope you feel better soon. Handmade stuff certainly helps - right?
